I have a 1950 Baldwin M, and love it, as do most folks who play it. The consensus is the same as you've noted: surprisingly good bass given its scale length, and nice tone across the compass. Your preference for it over a Steinway S is shared by man

I would say that Rick's assessment is pretty much on the mark. It really is a matter of real world practicality. If we were breaking news ground, so to speak, that's a different story. But much of this discussion is not doing that. Now that I said t

I glad to see what might be another worthwhile entry into the digital piano market, especially if it comes without the Clavia Nord price tag. However it might be even harder to get hands on these products. It's already a challenge to test drive non-Y

Not enough knowledge to comment on Baldwins and possible issues. The one thing that surprises me is that you think playing on the heavier action will improve your technique. My personal opinion is that heavy actions are a recipe for injury. Could y

I started as an adult, and tried to teach myself in my early 20s using the Alfred's books. Some 20 years later I decided to try again starting with the same books. That lead to me getting a teacher and learning more classical repertoire and technique
